VOODOO BLOOD + PUSSYWILLOWFURRYVENUS
Voodoo Blood Biography
"“What a voice,” shouted an enthusiastic punter shortly after Voodoo Blood had left the stage. Delivering their set with an unignorably stark gravity, fuzzy, crackling tones and deep bass grooves punctuating a feisty performance that had fluctuated strategically between heaviness, soulful slide guitar and more, this was the perfect introduction to a band that can go far. They oozed confidence in their performance, frontwoman Kimberly Jennett prowling the stage with an intent and purpose that sucked you into their aura. Their slickness, both attacking and caressing your senses in equal measure throughout, did us Northerners damn proud on a bill otherwise populated by Southerners" - Manchester rocks.
“''Over the last year PussyWillowFurryVenus have astounded audiences and received rave reviews for their electric live performances''”

Sticky Vicky, the opening track on PussyWillowFurryVenus’ latest EP, The Slag Who Fell To Earth, is a real furnace blast of intent with prowling guitars really let off the leash in a pell-mell rush of pure adrenaline with the vocals spat out like they’ve been fired from a shotgun. It’s a real sugar rush, particularly as it also demonstrates their superlative playing style that is as tight as Kylie’s hotpants. It’s a wonderful seven-tracker of an EP and a real showcase for the band’s many talents. Mighty Aphrodite and In Doom show that they know how to do the broodingly monumental while Black Dahlia demonstrates a real ability to slow things right down without losing any of their vice-like grip and power. - Crack Magazine Oct 2015
“Wild alternative rock, female-fronted, stylish and uncompromising”

The delightfully named PussyWillowFurryVenus have recently had their storming track ‘Hateful’ played on BBC Introducing and have an O2 Academy show confirmed in Newcastle for June, but this is the best way to see them; up close and in your face! As their debut EP, The Slag Who Fell To Earth confirmed, PussyWillowFurryVenus pull no punches. From the unapologetic raw sexuality of vocalist Steph Mac, to the riffarama of guitarist Rob Liam Lowery and from the androgyny of bassist Leah Landmine to new drummer Dave ‘Slayerdude’ McQuillen; the band are as much a visual treat as they are an assault on the ears. Tracks such as ‘Sticky Vicky’ – sounding like Babes In Toyland fronting Bleach-era Nirvana – and the post-grunge hardcore of ‘In Doom’ showcase the bands intensity, with plenty of vocal harmonies and instant riffs thrown in for good measure. - Gigs North East 19.02.2016
